This book is concerned with a discussion of the basic
facts, concepts, and problems of cellular biology. The authors have provided a
general picture of the field, the details of which may be filled in by reference
to the many fine sources available. Topics covered includes: Cells and Cellular
Organization, Proteins, Nucleic Acids, Lipids, Carbohydrates, Inorganic
Constituents, Structure and Function of Cytoplasmic, Endoplasmic Reticidum,
Microsomes, Cytoplasmic Matrix, Cell Membrane, Vacuoles, Structure and Function
of the Nucleus, Nuclear Envelope, Chromomeres, Mechanics and Physiology of Cell
Division, The Chromosome Coiling Cycle, Cytogenetics, Radiation Cytology, Survey
of Cytological Techniques.
This note provides an
introduction to the structure of eukaryotic genomes, from the level of the
chromosome down to the level of the gene. Basic cytological techniques including
the use of the optical microscope will be covered and supported by laboratory
exercises. Also includes the application of cytogenetic and molecular techniques
in the study of cell division, karyotyping, chromosomal structure,
recombination, changes in chromosome number and structure, physical mapping and
This book has been
prepared for students of the biological sciences who desire a means of becoming
more readily acquainted with the literature and problems of cytology. Topics
covered includes: Description of the cell, the nucleus, the centrosome and the
blepharoplast, plastids and chondriosomes, metaplasm; polarity, somatic mitosis
and chromosome individuality, the achromatic figure, cytokinesis, and the cell
wall, reduction of the chromosomes, the role of the cell organs in heredity,
mendelism and mutation.
The purpose of
this book is to present a reasoned case for regarding bacteria as living cells
with the same structure and functions as other living cells, and to correlate
the available information upon the various types of bacteria. Major topics
covered are: Surface Structures, The Bacterial Nucleus, Sexuality in bacteria,
Life Cycles in Bacteria, Macroformations, Evolutionary Relationships of Bacteria
and the genetics of bacteria.
This book covers the following topics related to cytology: Nucleus and
Cytoplasm,Meiosis, Syngamy, Early Development, Parthenogenesis, Sex Chromosomes, Heredity and Morphogenesis, Nucleus of the
Protista and Plants.
This manual is intended to be used as a specimen collection
guideline for cytology. Each separate area of concern is included in a different
procedure. Therefore, items such as "transportation", "patient preparation", and
"preservation required" may differ from procedure to procedure.
